The staff of the Elma Ross Public Library would like to extend to all our patrons and friends, a very blessed and happy Thanksgiving.  Without you, our patrons and friends, the library would not be what it is today.  Thank you for making this library a success.  The library will be closed on Thursday, November 26th and Friday, November 7th in observance of the Thanksgiving holiday. 

            We hope that everyone has a great Thanksgiving and can spend it with people that they care about.  And of course, there is the food.  Lots and lots of food.  All kinds of good things to eat.  What are your favorites?  After doing a brief survey, we came up with the following best foods of Thanksgiving.  They are: turkey and dressing, ham, candied sweet potatoes, green beans, corn pudding, asparagus casserole, homemade yeast rolls, and desserts.  There are just too many good desserts out there; we don’t have room to list them all.  If you want some great recipes to use for this Thanksgiving, come and browse our cookbook selections.  We have many cookbooks to choose from.  Be aware that we tell anyone who checks out a cookbook from us that they have to bring samples of what they made to us at the library when they return the book.  That’s only fair, right?

            Here is our schedule for December:

            December 4th – Gingerbread House Family Night at 7 p.m.  Reservations are required.  Space is limited.  Hear the story of the “Gingerbread Baby” and make gingerbread houses out of graham crackers, frosting and lots of candy.  This is really lots and lots of fun

            December 7th and 21st – Toddler Time will be offered these days at 11 a.m.  All toddlers and their parents are invited to hear stories, crafts/coloring, and a light snack.  Toddler Time at the library is great fun.  Please join us!

            The library will be closed December 24 – 36th in observance of the Christmas holiday.

            Happy Reading!

Let’s give a big round of applause to Mr. Bill Stewart!  Mr. Stewart was the guest speaker for Friends Night last week.  Mr. Stewart has written a book of poetry titled “Poetry for us Common Folk.”  His presentation was fantastic!  Thank you, Bill, for being our guest speaker.  We enjoyed it very much.  Come and visit with us again.

            The Library will be closed on Thursday, November 26th and Friday, November 27th in observance of the Thanksgiving holiday.  We hope that everyone has a blessed day and is able to spend it with their loved ones.  We have some great cookbooks here at the library if you are looking for some great recipes to try.  Just thinking about all that good food is making us hungry!

            Well, the library is gearing up for Gingerbread House Family Night. The Gingerbread House Family Night is scheduled for Friday, December 4, 2009, at 7 p.m.  Reservations are required.  Please call 772-9534 to make your reservation as space is limited.  Join us for a night of great stories, and ooey-gooey fun!
